It was Killy's slalom run that was disputed. Schranz was ruled missing a
gate, but it was foggy and thus the dispute. Yes, Girardelli ripped like
nobody, year in, year out. I recorded a lot of racing during his height. I
have one where he wins the Lauberhorn D.H - his run was so perfect and
effortless, he made it look like skiing down a novice trail, truely!

sometimes I come out of hiding. have successfully moved from the old family
house. What a task. Hope to get skiing seriously next winter.  -- Stuart
